enantiomer,

another term for optical isomer. See Stereoisomers under isomerisomer
, in chemistry, one of two or more compounds having the same molecular formula but different structures (arrangements of atoms in the molecule). Isomerism is the occurrence of such compounds. Isomerism was first recognized by J. J. Berzelius in 1827.

Taiyo International, Inc., Minneapolis, MN, has received an official "letter of no objection" from the FDA regarding the self-affirmed GRAS (generally recognized as safe) status of its enantiomerically pure L-theanine, marketed as Suntheanine, produced via a patented enzymatic fermentation method.
One possibility of preparing compound 2 is to start from 2-oxabicyclo[3.3.0]oct-6-en-3-one (Grieco lactone) 1 [10], which is a commercially readily available product, in enantiomerically pure form and in multigram scale [11-14].
